    You haven't uploaded the htaccess file, its included in the /upload/ folder, however Mac Computers are setup to ignore/hide those files.

    You can create a htaccess.txt file on your computer, upload it to the server, and rename it, here are the contents.

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine On
     #In some cases where you have other mod_rewrite rules, you may need to comment out the following line
     #and change it to match your folder name. This resets the other mod_rewrite rules for just this directory
     #If your site was, the setting would be /forum/
     RewriteBase /
     # Send css calls directly to the correct file VBV-7807
     RewriteRule ^css.php$ core/css.php [NC,L]
     # Redirect old install path to core.
     RewriteRule ^install/ core/install/ [NC,L]
     # Main Redirect
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.(gif|jpg|jpeg|png|css)$
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
     RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?routestring=$1 [L,QSA]
     # Because admincp is an actual directory.
     RewriteRule ^(admincp/)$ index.php?routestring=$1 [L,QSA]

    IT appears as if your webserver doesn't support the mod_rewrite, either all or part. Contact your webhost for more help.
